CRIMSON and GRAY 




MARY WELLS HIGH SCHOOL 



SOUTHBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS 



1961 



The class of 1961 has chosen as its yearbook theme "The Civil War 
of 1861." On the 100th anniversary of that war, we remember that 
the people of that time overcame the pressing problems of their day 
to build a better future for their posterity. Just as they rose above 
the tide of the times, we look forward to taking our place in the 
world. By helping to solve the equally pressing problems of this era, 
we hope that we may be able to build a better America for our 
posterity.

ROBERT L. FOX 

Superintendent 



To the Members of the Class of 1961 — Mary E. Wells High School: 

The struggle to preserve the rights of the individual is as old as the story of man. 
It has been a revolutionary process marked by elevations of success and valleys of dark- 
ness. But so long as each succeeding elevation is a little higher and each valley more 
shallow than the last, progress is being made. 

The Civil War which is one of the themes of this book began a strong movement 
which, of late, has increased in tempo toward the highest level yet attained in man's 
acceptance of equality for all. We are in a period of grandiose and chaotic transition 
from which a better world should grow. 

Great changes in the social order usually have their martyrs, those who work with 
a single, resolute purpose without thought of self. It remains for the rest of us to 
approach the situation with calmness, understanding, and sympathy.

DR. JAMES M. ROBERTSON 
Principal 




To the Class of 1961: 

Messages to classes after my twenty-four years in Southbridge may seem trite. I 
know this is not so today, for this year we have experienced a presidential election which 
proves that regardless of creed we are Americans. • 

Our forefathers came to America for religious freedom, but our forefathers were 
often as dogmatic as the creeds they fled. History tells us that the early settlers of our 
nation expelled Roger Williams, Anne Hutchinson, and other God-fearing peoples be- 
cause they did not subscribe to the doctrines of the religion to which the Massachusetts 
Bay Colonists adhered and following the British precedent the head of this government 
was expected to be a Protestant. 

It has taken over a century for Americans to accept the preamble to the Constitu- 
tion and to adopt the first ten amendments to the Constitution. I sincerely trust that you 
graduates of 1961 will recognize that as long as man lives a God-fearing life, his race, 
color, or creed is immaterial. The important facts are not from whence we come or 
from what religious or social backgrounds we stem, but rather from the integrity and 
tolerance that we demonstrate to all peoples. 

1961 — I hope you will open your hearts and minds and realize that if you are 
true to yourself, you will always be true to all mankind. Herein, I believe, is the hope 
for the future and the salvation of mankind.

DEDICATION 



We, the class of 1961, dedicate our yearbook to our class adviser, 
Mr. Eugene Remian. Since our Junior year Mr. Remian has guided with 
the utmost of interest and devotion. With his help and encouragement 
we built the pillars for our prom, executed an efficient concessions pro- 
gram, and carried out many other functions. We sincerely hope that this 
dedication "will express at least a small part of our deep appreciation to 
Mr. Remian.

Freshman class officers elected to head the class of 1961 were following: Peter

CLASS PROPHECY 



Good evening, everyone. This is Eugene Remian, your Master 
of Ceremonies. Since the Class of 1961 was the last to graduate 
from Mary E. Wells High School, their twentieth reunion will 
be held at the Wells auditorium tonight. 

Among the celebrities are those who have become famous in 
the entertainment field. 

Marsha DiCrescenzo has been nominated for an Oscar for her 
new version of Gone With The Wind. 

The celebrated pianist, Miss Beverly Gauthier, is taking time 
out "from her second world concert tour to attend our reunion. 

Arthur Bertoit is known as the "Question"; his first record, 
"Answers," sold a million copies. 

Mary E. Bousquet, professionally known as Marie Bouquet, 
has received an Oscar for co-starring with Richard Boiteau, an- 
other Oscar winner, in the movie, Ben Blur. \ 

Ann Decataldi is the female replacement for Emmett Kelly 
and has been travelling with the "Bainum and Barley" Circus. 

Brian Chipman has replaced Dick Clark as master of cere- 
monies of American Bandstand. 

Victoria Barth has invented the controversial dance step — 
"The Tangle." 

Thomas Cerny is the director of the well-known TV quiz 
show, "Lose Your Shirt." 

Marguerite Rines heads a four-piece combo at the famous 
Copa Cabana in New York. 

Peter Spiro is the All-American quarterback for the New 
York Giants. 

Judith Tobia will display the many trophies awarded for 
her marvelous basketball skill; Louise Jovan, well known as the 
star in basketball in the 1964 Olympics, accompanies Judith. 

Alvin Tompkins has received a gold record for his latest 
rendition "Alvin's Harmonica." 

Margaret Langevin is playing Lady Macbeth in Stratford-on- 
Avon. 

Tina Karcasinas' "Twirling Batoners" have ended a fabulous 
Broadway season. 

Jane Laughnane is the new "Champagne Lady" on the Law- 
rence Welk Show. 

Jane often drops into Pauline LaFleche's Hollywood Beauty 
Salon to pretty up for her show. 

Pat Kowalski also drops in to prepare for her appearances in 
"Keep Talking." 

Down in Greenwich Village we hear the beatniks talk in 
hushed whispers about Phil Mathews, the coolest hipster this side 
of Elvis Presley. 

Martha McMaster, the loquacious female, has transferred her 
talents into money by playing the leading role in the Broadway 
production of Our Miss Brooks, directed by "Doc" Fletcher. 

Mary Ellen Morin, that nonconformist, has informed her 
friends for the 69th time that she "is not having a party tonight." 

Lili Nikolla has returned from Greece on a vacation from 
the motion picture business. Her latest movie is entitled Macbeth. 

Shirley Palmerino, who accompanied Lili, has found some 
valuable _ ancient Greek relics to add to her museum collection. 

Bruce Panico has won world fame by becoming the first 
white player to join the Harlem Globe Trotters. 

Other former students are working for the government. 

Helen Iacobucci has left her job as court reporter to be a 
judge in the greatest contest of all time. This contest is a war 
of wits between Harry, the mechanical man, and David Houle, 
who has become famous for his accounting skill. At this point, 
Harry seems to have a slight lead. 

Jill Lamarine is a nurse serving U.N.E.F. in Laos for the 
United Nations. 

Dot Karbowski is a private secretary to the distinguished 
Secretary General of that world organization, Paul Dussault. 

Carol Pariseau, since her enlistment in the W.A.C.'s, has 
designed "Pariseau's Pink Portable Parachutes." 

Gloria Asselin is the second woman Secretary of State, suc- 
ceeding Mary McKinstry. 

Pauline Croce is secretary to the President of the AFL-CIO 
labor union. Joanne LaLiberte is her assistant. 

Nancy Carpenter has recently been appointed head of all 
the employment bureaus in the United States. 

William Orzech and Bob Polakowski, United States Ambas- 
sadors to Poland, have returned to Southbridge to dedicate an- 
other fan club to themselves. 

Many 1961 Wells Graduates have gone into some kind of 
space service: 



Maralee Mach has become a famous airline hostess, stopping 
in her Florida mansion between flights. 

Dennis Bushe, after discovering a new planet, Pioneerland, 
is preparing to explore it. Dick McAvoy is his guide. 

Irene Renaud and Mary Reil are co-owners of the Double R 
Beauty Salon located on Route I, Venus. 

Judith Pontbriand is test piloting X-15's.

teacher on Venus — she's the only one! 

Bernard Sherry, the roving reporter, is currently writing a 
series for the New Moon Tribune. 

Diane Landry has moved up the ranks to become a four star 
general in the W. A. F. • ■ 

David Gibson, the head of a flourishing model agency, is 
currently touring the^ universe with a line of the new "Wear 
Once" paper clothes. The credit for this discovery goes to John 
Hoyt, who has spent years in the African jungles searching for 
the exact tree from which to make the paper. 

One of the most famous of the "Gibson Girls" is Doris 
Gravel who will represent the United States in the Miss Universe 
contest this year. 

One of a team of experts who have been sent to bring civil- 
ization to Mars is Ronald Giovanello. After building the first 
stadium on a space platform, he plans to bring football to the 
Martians. 

Another expert, Merilyn Haynes, explains modern art to their 
people. 

Heading the team of experts is Alice Hebert who often can 
be seen striding about with her space helmet under her arm, 
campaigning for the admission of Mars to the United Nations. 

Alice's chief backer in this cause is Marcia Houde as trans- 
lator at the U. N. 

Joan Iozzo has also taken to the air. She has become head 
of a taxicopter service, which offers roof to roof transportation. 

Others of that illustrious class tell us news about themselves.

and three in the largest display window of Macy's Department 
Store, modeling the latest styles in men's clothing.

string of beauty salons with the slogan — "Dye Your Hair to 
Match Your School Colors." 

Cynthia Berthiaume is the first person to invent a typewriter 
with an automatic eraser. 

Lucille Bucchiacio's new type of hypodermic needle makes 
getting shots a pleasure. 

Richard Tiberii is a four star general in the Army. 

Kenneth Cotton is the designer of a new line of cars called

The Class of 1961 is privileged to be the last class 
to graduate from Mary E. Wells High School. No longer 
■will the halls echo with the laughter of high school stu- 
dents in their many activities. New corridors will house 
the joys and problems of those who come after us. De- 
parting for the last time, we leave a portion of ourselves 
in the school which has been the source of our greatest 
joy for four short years. We go forth, as will many mem- 
bers of the faculty, with enduring memories of Wells 
High.

A MAN PREPARED 



HAS FOUGHT HALF THE BATTLE 



a 




The above quotation is as fresh and 
true as it was when wise old Cer- 
vantes—author of Don Quixote— wrote 
it over 300 years ago. Study and prep- 
aration for the future have always 
paid dividends in later years. 

The academic training you now re- 
ceive is your preparation for coming 
battles. Such weapons as English, 
mathematics, and science will be used 
constantly to accumulate greater 
knowledge, to acquire new skills, to 
earn a living. Much of your success in 
later life will depend upon how thpr- 
oughly you master your present 
studies. 



A successful business, too, must pre- 
pare itself for whatever changes the 
future may bring. Here at American 
Optical Company we constantly study 
and search for new materials, new de- 
signs, new techniques. Through day- 
to-day learning and new ideas we 
have kept abreast or ahead of the 
times in our field. 

Our very best wishes go with you 
who are about to assume you new 
duties and obligations in life. It is 
our sincere hope that the future years 
may hold for you a brimming measure 
of health and happiness.
